58 thousand producers of Kazakhstan will be driven out from procurements of subsoil users from 2021 - businessman
Astana. September 18. KazTAG - More than 58 thousand producers of Kazakhstan will be driven out from the procurement of subsoil users from 2021, said Ualikhan Akhmetov, general director of Karlskrona LC AB LLP.
“More than 58 thousand suppliers are registered on the Internet list of subsoil users - Kazakhstani producers of goods and services. The total volume of purchases by subsoil users at the end of 2019 amounted to 7.6 million. Therefore, it is strategically important for maximum development by Kazakhstani companies, ”Akhmetov said at the VIII Forum of Kazakhstan Machine Builders.
In his words, the cancellation of support measures for local producers threatens to oust tens of thousands of Kazakhstani companies by large foreign manufacturers and service companies, which employ hundreds of thousands of people in Kazakhstan.
“In the context of post-crisis recovery, we ask you to support domestic producers, as well as to develop alternative measures as soon as possible that do not contradict WTO norms,” Akhmetov said.
